Colour, gumboots, rain and chaos... Foreshore, Canberra

The Gumboot Story: 
on Foreshore weekend, all sizes below a men's size 11 sold out across Canberra! 
I went past Magnet Mart to get some gumboots since mine had cracks and they said they've sold out, as had Big W and Bunnings... not good news since in 2 weeks we need to buy 6 pairs for models for a school project.

The Clothing Exchange... Tilley's, Lyneham

Here's a report back from the last Clothing Exchange held in the beautiful surrounds of Tilley's:

 I'm impressed by the clothing stands and hangers, which although not the sturdiest, are completely flat. The stands are laser cut from ply and the hangers made from cardboard. 

The nice presentation of the clothes goes some way to transform the vibe of an event that could've seemed more like a Vinnies scrounge (not that I don't also engage in those activities too :)
...funny, I ran into friends that I didn't even know were going and had a great time drinking wine and talking clothes.
The hosts sorting and hanging the garments...

 ....tokens (aka buying chips), and time between registration and swap to have a glass of wine! be fair the swap commences after instructions regarding the number of of garments you can have at once. 

You can tell who's swapped before they've already eyed the garments and make a beeline for them...
